Poor Man's Bucket Clamp
No added hydraulics are needed to operate this "poor man's" bucket clamp. A clever linkage arrangement closes a jaw against the bucket of a loader by action of the bucket cylinder. This loader jaw makes it easy to pick up bulky items like stumps, building trash, etc. It's mounted in place by simply replacing pivot pins on the loader. In operation, a jaw link causes the jaw to pivot out of the way when the bucket is tipped into the dumping position. When the bucket is rolled back, the link causes the jaw to rotate to-wards the edge of the bucket, providing a gripping function. I've patented the idea and want to find a manufacturer. (Albert C.
